“Bit of fun”
Reviewed January 11, 2012

Good for a lark - if you are into snorkelling. You do have to be comfortable duck diving to about 3 m.

“Fun day out”
Reviewed January 4, 2012

We were undecided whether to find our own way out to the island for the day, or take advantage of the tour. In the end we went with the tour as it included bus transfers each way, all snorkel gear, welcome drink (juice), lunch, glass bottom boat ride and snorkel safari all for just under $AUD 40.

The waters around the island were not as good as our Pele Island tour, but the advantage was the reef was metres from the shore so we could snorkels as much or as little as we liked. I also think there was more variety of fish that we saw at Hideaway compared to Pele Island.

“Cool activity”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

This is a great activity but not the best beach or lagoon around. Definitely fun to dive down and post your postcard underwater. Expect a delay on the delivery though! There's also a small entry fee (covers boat ride) and take your own flippers, snorkel etc. Also a bar and eatery on the island if you wanted to stay longer for lunch.
